Pain & injury recovery

When you’re in pain nothing else matters and all you want is relief.  It decreases your appetite, disrupts your attention and limits your mobility. You may have to give up something you love, like golf, hiking or skiing or you may be challenged by simpler things like getting out of a chair or walking up stairs.

Whether your pain is chronic or acute, comes from a known injury or just seemed to appear, you need a training program that will address the underlying issues, by correcting the problem and building strength where necessary. 

What causes pain & injury?
Our lifestyles put stress on our bodies that they weren’t designed to handle.  Without realizing it, we develop weaknesses and muscle imbalances that may eventually lead to injury or pain.  Sitting for long periods of time, working on a computer, wearing high heels, overuse or repetitive motion and manual labour are all examples of daily activities that make us susceptible to injury.  Other potential sources for pain & injury are:

  • Poor posture
  • Muscular imbalance
  • Lifestyle (somatic and visceral pain)
  • Sports

Medication and different therapies can all provide temporary relief, but are not a long term solution.  Corrective conditioning exercises address the root of your problem and strengthen your body to protect itself from further preventable injury.

 It’s not about huge muscles, bulking up, or a “no pain, no gain” philosophy. It’s about using corrective conditioning exercises to address the weaknesses causing the pain or injury.  You will bring your muscles into balance, improve your posture, strengthen your core and stabilizer muscles, and give your body strength and support to prevent further injury and pain.
